New cases and deaths of COVID-19 continue to rise in Michigan. Tests have increased in recent weeks, with more than 40,000 diagnostic tests reported per day, but the positive rate has risen to over 5%. Hospitalizations have increased steadily over the past four weeks, including increases in intensive care and ventilator use.
Michigan’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 2,879 on Saturday – the highest on record. The state’s death rate is 4.1%. The state is also reporting “active cases,” which stood at 52,000 on Friday, its highest score on record.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 3.5 million people have recovered in the United States, with more than 9 million cases reported across the country. More than 229,000 have died in the United States
Worldwide, more than 45.7 million people have been confirmed to be infected and more than 1.19 million have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. The real numbers are certainly much higher, due to the limited testing, the different ways nations count the dead, and the deliberate underreporting of some governments.

The ease with which the virus spreads
